I'm really taken with the gull on the pier post and the starfish charm. And being me, the blues used 'sing' to me.

The Cedar Waxwings have also been 'singing' to me - their high-pitched whistle.  most days now I see a small flock of 8-12 birds.  They momentarily perch in the distant trees, but are not coming in close as of yet.    

It was thrilling to have this female Western Tanager 'come in close' for three mornings running.

Last year I had a female and young male that I saw regularly in the late summer.

I will gladly 'make do' with this female, but also hold out hopes of other Western Tanagers coming by.
